George Jones postponing more shows due to illness

– Doctors are ordering George Jones to postpone all tour dates through May 20 to recover from an upper respiratory infection.

A statement from Jones’ publicist, Kirt Webster, says the 80-year-old singer is resting at his home near Nashville. He spent about a week in the hospital last month receiving antibiotics for the infection.

Jones is delaying his entire Canadian run in May as well as a show in Caruthersville, Missouri. He had already postponed concerts on April 20 and 21 in Minnesota and South Dakota.

The Country Music Hall of Fame member posted a video on his website Wednesday thanking fans for their prayers and the “wonderful ways” they have stood by him. He said he was on his “way back for sure.”
